The Most Hands-On Photography Courses in Canada

Held over just one day, generally a Saturday or Sunday from 10am to 4pm, our courses are fun, small, convenient and all inclusive.

Digital I - Beginner Photography

In our most popular photography course, Digital I Beginner Photography, you will have a full hands-on and interactive photography experience. Held in interesting locations around the city, we will have you out of the classroom and into real world photography situations.

We believe you learn photography by DOING it, and with proper instruction in the moment, you make much greater progress. By taking hundreds of photos throughout the day, you will learn how to use your camera effectively to get the photos you want. Our instructors will take the mystery and the frustration out of taking great pictures, and bring back the fun!

This course is perfect for the beginner.  In our Digital I beginner photography course we show you everything you need to know to use your camera in full manual mode, choose the right lens for the job, and find the right angles. Our students learn to capture breathtaking images, while having the confidence to replicate their photographs every time.

Topics that are covered include: Portrait photography, Travel photography, Flower photography and Indoor photography.
